Not all injuries and illnesses are visible.

When your work is interrupted by illness or injury, you quickly find a lot of your life being spent in waiting rooms. Medical appointments, treatments and assessments can consume all of your days and energy. But what if, instead of sitting there, you put your smartphone to good use while you wait?

Fortunately, when you need some help getting back on your game, the internet is often accessible right from your phone to help you recover lost ground and stay sharp.

Today I’m sharing 15 apps that make you smarter. No injury required.

Check them out and I bet you’ll become hooked on more than one!

More next time. Until then, remember to LOVE YOUR WORK, whatever it may be.

PS I hope you’ll find the new RAISING THE BAR series inspiring. If so, please share this post with friends and followers. You never know what burdens others are carrying or how much their load might be made lighter by doing so. ♥♥♥


Raising The Bar is a new series for the SMARTSTART community that has been taking shape in my head for most of the time I’ve spent working to recover from catastrophic brain, spinal cord and psychological injuries resulting from a near fatal accident in 2009. Success, whether it’s in rehab, business, relationships, or life, hinges on our ability to master this simple formula: Belief (B) + Attitude (A) = Response (R).

I’m excited to be sharing it with you now as a next step in my injury recovery. Consider this your invitation to join me on a grand adventure. Oh, the places we will go! Including all the places that scare us most. For that is where the greatest opportunities for joy and happiness — the true measures of success — reside!
